Global Motorcycle Cruise Control Market 2017-2021
About Motorcycle Cruise Control
A motorcycle cruise control is an electronic component that monitors motorcycle speed by monitoring engine revolutions per minute (RPM) to maintain a constant set speed. The cruise control is made up of three main components: Servo unit, throttle cable, and associated wiring. It uses the speed signal from vehicle speed sensor (VSS) in case of an electronic speedometer or monitor engine RPM through an electrical connection made to the ignition coil. When cruise control is engaged by pressing the set button at a desired speed, it will set that speed such that the motorcycle will travel at the set speed consistently till disengaged. Cruise control can be disengaged automatically as well as manually. It disengages automatically when the front or rear brake is applied, or clutch is disengaged by the driver. Manually it can be disengaged by simply turning off the switch. The consistent speed allows the engine to burn fuel efficiently and offers comfort and control over speed limits set.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global motorcycle cruise control market to grow at a CAGR of 15.93% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Motorcycle Cruise Control Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global motorcycle cruise control market: Motorcycle Cruise Controls, Rostra, Murphs’ Kits, and Juliano’s Hot Pod Parts
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing adoption of electronic cruise control over traditional cruise control. Globally, there is a growing preference for motorcycles for touring purposes. The demand for cruise control is increasing owing to the comfort and safety it offers for long distances, all the while adhering to stipulated speed limits. Electronic cruise control helps in providing solutions to these problems by boosting efficiency in terms of performance and features over traditional cruise control. The presence of backend unit in electronic cruise control ensures the monitoring of engine RPM and speed signals to automatically adjust according to terrain, contrary to traditional cruise control.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased electrification of mechanical components. Electronic components help in increasing the efficiency and riding experience in a motorcycle. This key factor is enabling rapid electrification of components, which were earlier being used mechanically. This acts as a driver for the adoption of cruise control in motorcycles.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Functional and operational challenges. The primary use of motorcycle cruise control is to keep the motorcycle running at a steady speed, irrespective of the conditions and the terrain. Motorcycle cruise control maintains the speed by monitoring the engine RPM or speed signal through vehicle speed sensor. Basically, it is suited when the road is straight and not slick. On curve and slick roads, cruise control is not 100% effective and doesn’t offer the same benefits as on straight and clear roads.
